IN THE PAST FEW DAYS, there’s been no need for tourists in Vancouver, British Columbia to pay hundreds of dollars to hop into a speed boat and go whale watching.
A humpback whale has been feeding in English Bay and people have been able to get close and personal interactions with this beautiful marine mammal.

H/T: Vancouver is Awesome.
